Santa Cruz Tallboy
The Tallboy was our first 29er, and reflected the way we wanted 29ers to ride – fast and fun. For our second iteration, we doubled down on this idea, and made what amounts to a screamer of an XC bike that still feels right at home on real trails. Features like the ISCG 05 tabs, the 142mm thru-axle in the rear, and routing for dropper posts may not have been the first things on the list for most full-suspension cross-country bikes, but we felt they were all must-haves, and you'll find them all on the Tallboy. Out back, there’s 100mm of VPP-controlled travel, and we've tuned the shock rate to provide an efficient but smooth ride. When paired with a 120mm fork, it offers traction and control in spades.
Santa Cruz 5010
5010 is built to serve the most technical backcountry missions.
Santa Cruz Bronson
When we introduced Bronson, it took the market by storm, redefining what people expected from a 150mm trail bike. Equally at home in the Trans-Provence as it was on The Ridge, updating and improving it was going to be no small feat.
Santa Cruz Hightower
Hightower has the versatility to deal with whatever appears on the horizon. Running either proven 29" wheels or the new monster-truck 27.5”+ standard, Hightower seamlessly adapts to the trails and style you ride, no matter where you are in the world.
Santa Cruz Superlight
The Superlight, along with the Heckler, is one of the longest-tenured models in the Santa Cruz lineup. It’s fast, light, unapologetically simple, and a blast to ride. When it came time to redesign the Superlight, we wanted to make a bike that fit each rider’s size and weight as well as possible. The result is that the small and medium sizes utilize higher shock leverage ratios to ensure lighter riders make effective use of the travel. We also used 27.5" wheels in the small and medium sizes to improve handling and create industry-leading standover height for shorter riders.
